Missions

The mission of the month for June is Sleep in Heavenly Peace which is a National Organization run completely by volunteers.  It started in Idaho when a group of people realized that there were children in the community that did not have a bed to sleep in.  These children end up sleeping on couches, blankets and even floors.  Some did not have a pillow to use.

 

This group decided that a bed is a basic need for the proper physical, emotional and mental support that a child needs.  All children deserve a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads.

 

With that idea in mind Sleep In Heavenly Peace was born to deliver top notch beds and bunk beds to children and families in need.

As this idea spread others realized that many communities had children that did not have a bed to sleep in.   Sleep In Heavenly Peace has grown to become a National Organization.   There are chapters in many states including Wisconsin.  Oshkosh is the home to one of the chapters in Wisconsin.

 

How would I be able to help?

Sleep In Heavenly Peace is made up of many volunteers who give of their time and talents.  Builds are held as often as need, to assemble and deliver beds.  During a building session peoples skills vary from pounding nails to cutting boards and assembling beds.  Most builds are held on Saturday mornings so that people who work during the week are able to participate.

 

The Oshkosh Chapters of Sleep In Heavenly Peace also provides all of the bedding needed for the assembled bed.   This includes, mattresses, mattress pads, top and bottom sheets, pillow and pillow case and a comforter. All of these items are provided as new and unopened. The cost of these items adds up quickly so cash donations are always appreciated.

 

During the month of June the Mission Team will provide more information about Sleep In Heavenly Peace.   On Sunday, June 2, a speaker from the organization will be at our church.
